Ferrari 458 spider
Usher loves luxury and this is clearly evident from his possession of a black Ferrari 458 spider, which he adores driving along the streets. One of the finest sports cars in the world, the Ferrari 458 spider might be Usher’s favorite on account of its lightening top speed or may be the bold exterior styling, but one thing is for sure that the singer appreciates the Italian car manufacturer. The sports car comes equipped with a commanding V8 engine developing 562hp and an influential braking system for providing immediate halt when required.
Usher got the chance to usher in an awesomely new bike, custom built for him for his birthday. Called the Brawler GTC, the bike was built by Darwin Motorcycles. With an impressive engine display and a powerfully muscular exhaust pipe, the bike is meant for single riding. It has been painted in black and fluorescent orange and it has wide handlebars with robust crash-guards. The broad tires assure a good balance at top speeds while the headlamp with the stylish meters and displays ups the punch-quotient of the bike.

Ducati Monster 1100 EVO motorbike
On the first week of March 2013, Raymond Usher opted for a enjoy ride on his matte black Ducati Monster 1100 EVO motorbike on the streets of the Manhattan neighborhood of New York City. The singer was almost unrecognizable since he covered his head in a crash helmet most of the time during his motorcycle ride. The menacing exterior appearance of the Ducati Monster 1100 EVO is further enhanced due to its external accessories like LED taillights and lightweight ten spoke wheels. The look and feel of the EVO strongly resembles that of a military motorcycle.
Usher Raymond bought himself a very cute Goldendoodle dog while raising money for Justin Bieber’s charity while attending the Oct. 25 Pencils of Promise gala in New York City. The singer landed the highest bid by outbidding former Gossip Girl actress Jessica Szohr.
